This was an interesting read; I do hope I will one day get to speak to you
at length on these topics.

 To the extent my views have evolved since them (and I'm inclined to
 say they haven't changed much), this is due partly to my years of work
 for Wikimedia Foundation and partly to my work on internet policy in
 the developing world.

 See, for example, how I dealt with the issue in developing the Great
 Charter for Cambodian Internet Freedom.

I'm not convinced you offered me a better choice of venue, geni. (If
you did, I missed the email.) But, then, I'm also not convinced that
worrying about venue -- rather than, say, focusing on publishing with
a journal that would give me the space to develop an argument at some
length.

I'm not well-positioned to game out the way every snarky commenter on
the sidelines will interpret anything I write or where I manage to get
published.  But it's worth noting that the same journal asked me to
make the case for Obama's re-election back in 2012, which is also
something you wouldn't expect.

We may reasonably expect, given the choice of venue, that my argument
will be considered quite heterodox to its regular readers, which is
actually good, not bad. (Other pieces by other authors have decried
net neutrality in general--I didn't do this, however, and they knew I
wouldn't.)
